MathGuru,
Margin of error = zvalue (sd/√n)
Find the zvalue corresponding to 90% confidence using a ztable.
sd = standard deviation
n = sample size
I hope this will help get you started.

Anonymous,
Please someone help me? The new twinkle bulb has a standard deviation 35 hours. A random sample of 50 light bulbs is selected from inventory. The sample mean was found to be x=500 hrs. Find the margin of error for 95%, construct a 95% confidence interval for the mean life of all Twinkle bulbs. I am desperate.
